WordPress with Single Pod

Last updated: 2022-02-22 17:34:15


    WordPress is a blogging platform developed with PHP. You can use it as a content management system, or use it to create websites on services that support PHP and MySQL databases.

    This document describes how to use the official wordpress image on Docker Hub to create a publicly accessible WordPress website.



    • The wordpress image contains all operating environments for WordPress, allowing you to pull and create the service directly.
    • WordPress with a single Pod is used for testing purposes only, and therefore cannot ensure persistent data storage. It is recommended that you use a self-built MySQL or TencentDB to store your data. For more information, see WordPress Using TencentDB.


    Creating a WordPress service

    1. Log in to the TKE console and select Cluster in the left sidebar.
    2. On the Cluster Management page, click the ID of the cluster for which the service is to create to go to the Deployment page of the cluster and click Create, as shown in the figure below.
    3. On the Create Workload page, specify basic information of the workload as instructed in the figure below.
    • Workload Name: enter the name of the workload to create. In this example, wordpress is used.
    • Description: specify related workload information.
    • Tag: specify the key-value pair. The default value is k8s-app = wordpress here.
    • Namespace: select a namespace based on your requirements.
    • Type: select a type based on your requirements.
    • Volume: set the volume to which the workload is mounted based on your requirements. For more information, see Volume Management.
    1. Set Containers in the Pod as instructed below:
      The main parameters are described as follows. You can retain the default values of other parameters.
    • Name: enter the custom container name. In this example, test is used.
    • Image: enter wordpress.
    • Image Tag: enter latest.
    • Image Pull Policy: three policies are available. Select a policy as required. In this example, the default policy is used.
      If you do not set any image pull policy and Image Tag is left empty or set to latest, the Always policy is used. Otherwise, the IfNotPresent policy is used.
      • Always: always pull the image from the remote end.
      • IfNotPresent: a local image is used by default. If no local image is available, the image is pulled remotely.
      • Never: only use a local image. If no local image is available, an exception occurs.
    1. Set the number of Pods for the service as instructed. See the figure below.
    • Manual adjustment: set the number of pods. The number of pods in this example is set to 1. You can click "+" or "-" to change the number of pods.
    • Auto Adjustment: the number of pods is automatically adjusted if any of the setting conditions are met. For more information, see Automatic Scaling Basic Operations.
    1. Configure Access Settings (Service) for the workload as instructed below:
    • Service: select Enable.
    • Service Access: select LoadBalancer (public network).
    • Load Balancer: select according to your requirements.
    • Port Mapping: select TCP, and set both the container port and service port to 80.

      The security group of the cluster to which the service belongs must open the node network and container network to the Internet. It is also required to open ports 30000 to 32768 to the Internet. Otherwise, TKE may be unavailable. For more information, see TKE Security Group Settings.

    1. Click Create Workload to create the WordPress service.

    Accessing the WordPress service

    You can access the WordPress service using either of the following two methods.

    Access using the CLB IP address

    1. In the left sidebar, click Cluster to go to the Cluster Management page.
    2. Click the ID of the cluster to which the WordPress service belongs and select Services and Routes > Service.
    3. On the service management page, copy the CLB IP address of the WordPress service, as shown in the figure below.
    4. Paste the CLB IP address in the browser and press Enter to access the service.

    Accessing the WordPress service using the service name

    Other services or containers in the cluster can access the WordPress service using the service name.

    Verifying the WordPress service

    After the service is created, the WordPress server configuration page is displayed when you access the service, as shown in the figure below.
